I believe that's called an Haboob

yup, off gassing can and usually will happen anytime there are changes in the environment, temperature fluctuations etc, regardless.I've spent too much time reading about this but read where it could be off gassing that pushes the hop particles to the top. And I thought that off gassing didn't happen if fermentation had completed but I guess I just showed more of what I don't know.Yea, I get the oil part as the last one I did have decent head but it didn't last and I can live with that. But I can't wrap my head around why all this happened days after FG was reached.
You'd think with all the beers under my belt I would have seen a good bit by now but that's the beauty of this hobby.....each 'child' is different.
If it weren't for the semi strange taste, I don't think I would have even posted this.
I'm cold crashing in a few days and hopefully drop this out.
I guess I don't understand why having reached FG would have any bearing on this.
+1 I get that sometimes with pellet hop dust settling on the yeast raftsto me it looks like you used pellet hops and the little flaky pieces are sitting on top of the remains of your krausen. Doesn't look like anything to worry about to me.
I thought the same thing when I saw it.
One thing I will say is that, if you have a new local brewery and they are producing decent - maybe not great, but decent - beer, cut them some slack. Maybe the clarity or carbonation is off. Maybe the consistency is different from batch to batch. Give them time to dial it in. It may take a couple years even.
I'd soak it longer in the PBW - it shouldn't hurt anything in terms of flavor affect on future beers, but if you really want to whack it, you could use unscented bleach solution, followed by thorough rinsing and then leave it open in the hot sun for a few days.
